President Donald Trump’s tweets are childish. One that I thought was ironic was something he tweeted on Nov. 29, “Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.” But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!” (@therealDonaldTrump). Mr. Trump has been called out multiple times for groping and kissing women without their consent. He has also said that he supports other minority groups. Well, what’s the use of the wall? The travel ban? Getting rid of DACA? That’s one of the many problems with not only the government, but the people of the United States as well.
In 2017, many people kneeled during the Pledge of Allegiance before sporting games. Some believe it started because of the police brutality aimed at African Americans. If President Trump says he supports everyone, why would he tweet this: “Two dozen NFL players continue to kneel during the National Anthem, showing total disrespect to our Flag & Country. No leadership in NFL!” These players are able to express themselves due to their freedom of speech. Stooping to calling them names and degrading them isn’t how you approach a problem.
Trump’s tweets revolved around his presidential opponents, the Republican Party, tax cuts, ObamaCare, fake news, and many more topics. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were neck and neck during the presidential election. Both would fight in person, and also on Twitter. “Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time. She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party. Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!” (@therealDonalTrump).
Belittling your competitors won’t win you the gold medal in a race.
Making your ego bigger than others doesn’t help your case either.
Honestly, President Trump needs to have his Twitter taken away.
I don’t want someone who runs our country to say childish and disrespectful things to the public.
